Can you even believe that it is the END OF MAY?! Like- how?! This year is flying by! However, I am so ready for summer. I know it can get miserably hot, here in Atlanta- BUT I just love the SUMMA, SUMMA, SUMMA TIME! [although, I do have to admit that I loved it more having my summers off to do nothing! -Back when I was teaching, and before that as a student- I got spoiled!]
Any-who, I'm here to tell yuh about an upcoming art show I will be featuring a new painting in. My dear friend, Lynne curated this show. So that means there will be some quality stuff there, for sure (she's friend's with all the artsy gals -and guys- in Atlanta, and paints + writes about them, here)! The show is titled 'A Soundtrack to Summer' at Coco+Mischa in Decatur, with opening night on Friday at 5-10pm!
Over the past few weeks, since returning from the wedding + honeymoon, I have thrown myself back into painting. And it feels soo good! I have been playing around in my sketchbook a lot this year, however, it had been along time since I touched a canvas, so the opportunity to be in this show came at just the right time!
And of course, once you've stopped something for a while- it's always hard to get it going again. So instead of being paralyzed by a blank canvas, I got white paint, and painted into a couple of paintings I was ready to part ways with. I flipped through my sketchbook and found some scribbles I was fond of and replicated them on the canvas, painting new life into these 'old' paintings. I'm so HAPPY with the results!
For this group show, each artist was to choose a song to be inspired by for their piece. When I think of summer, I think of all those fun summer concerts I went to and Animal Collective ALWAYS reminds me of summer and happy times with good people.
This painting is inspired by Animal Collective's FloriDada .
And ever since Instagram stories became a thing, the thing I get DM'd about the most is what I'm wearing. So I thought I would start sharing some style post periodically again. :D
